Spear of Longinus is an Australian Black Metal/Thrash Metal band formed in 1993 from Brisbane in Queensland whose lyrical themes are based on National Socialism, religion, philosophy and hatred.
The phrase “Spear of Longinus” is in reference to the spear that pierced Jesus Christ’s side as he was on the cross. It is told that who possesses the spear is granted immortality.
“…….and the Swastikalotus” was released in 2007 as a full-length album. Consisting of 11 songs, “…….and the Swastikalotus” is a fabulous album with each song a gem in itself. Right from the opening track “New Dawn” to the third song “Nuclear Vision” to the fourth song “Vishnu On The Way Home” to the fifth song “YHWH Penis Abominator”, it’s a musical pleasure served by Spear of Longinus.
Other tracks that are worth mentioning here are “The Lay Of Spartazen”, “Rebel Revolt – Monument” and “The Guilded Culprit”. This is a must buy album and I would say mandatory listening for every Black Metal/Thrash Metal fan.
